Did You Know: You’re Worth More Dead Than Alive?
A little short on rent? Bank threatening to take your car? Well, if you’re not using your spleen at the moment, you could get just over $500 for it. Not enough? How about putting your gallbladder on the market for $1,200 or being able to drop a large down payment on your dream house by letting a kidney go for $262,000?
It may sound crazy, but according to MedicalTranscription.net, there is an active market (mostly black market), for human body parts. With over 113,000 people on waiting lists for organ transplants and only a little over 14,000 organs donated last year, there are those who are willing to do whatever it takes… and pay whatever it takes… to get that organ. Or blood. Or bones.
